Edge Hill University 3rd Year Performing Arts Students present Limits of the Enlightenment
A season of work looking back to this cultural paradigm shift to ask ‘where are we now?
“Enlightenment is mankind’s exit from his self-incurred immaturity” Emmanuel Kant
A Dance Theatre Extravaganza inspired by the works of Marquis de Sade
The Marquis dedicated his work to “voluptuaries of all ages, of every sex”. Men should be cynics. “Lewd women… be heedless of all that contradicts pleasure’s divine laws, by which (you are) enchained.” “Young maidens…spurn all those ridiculous precepts inculcated in you by imbecile parents”. De Sade’s Ideology is “if it feels good do it”, and from the internet to Carnage Nights* to the excoriations of religious fundamentalists, we are his heirs.
